Summary

Summary

'A writer of passion and virtuosity' Scotland on Sunday

Comprising stories from her debut collection, Blood , and the critically acclaimed Where You Find It - this collection presents some of the best known and most loved works by one of Scotland's 'most gifted and original writers' ( Times Literary Supplement ).

Each sharply observed, savagely accurate and brilliantly realised - the stories offer revelatory glimpses into everyday lives - from an unwelcome act of kindness at a bus stop, an evening walk across a London bridge, a welcome but uncomfortable summer break to a brutal lesson in trust.

Here also are unflinching portrayals of relationships: the struggle to love against the odds, the overpowering yearning to communicate, and the extraordinary epiphanies where the world falls away leaving only the lovers.

These are painstakingly crafted stories: engaging, funny and terrifyingly true, from a master of the form.
